Interactive Installation

Øresund Bridge is an immersive installation that describes some of the key contributions from ARUP to the design of the iconic Oresund bridge between Denmark and Sweden.

When the Victoria and Albert Museum exhibition 'Ove Arup & The Philosophy of Total Design' visited Copenhagen at DAC (Danish Architecture Center) they wanted to add piece with a local focus.

The concept was to try and build a particularily elegant part of the outrigger structure from the cable girders in 1:1 scale. The elegant outriggers enable the elegant harp shaped stay cables that have become a recognised design feature of the iconic bridge.

The space itself was small and confined and we challenged ourselves to open it up with a ambient music composistion based on recordings of bridge traffic, sea and wind noise.

The installation features a bespoke point cloud tracker that works in concert with two projections to reproduce a dynamic first-person view to scale, effectively suspending the vistor from the side of the bridge and offering a stylized view that is at real scale as the basis for a graphical projection mapped explainer.

The piece was commisioned by ARUP.
